Sol Guyana Donates to Houston Secondary School

The local team donated garbage bins to the school to help improve the surrounding appearance and highlight proper safety and trash disposal practices. The donation was welcomed, as the school had a situation of inadequate bins to serve the entire student population. Sol’s partnership with Houston Secondary School will continue for future projects.

Sol Barbados Supports BTA's Christmas Fun Day

In February 2015, Sol Barbados began a partnership with the Barbados Tennis Association (BTA), where students from Blackman and Gollop Primary School, Grantley Prescod Memorial Primary School and Luther Thorne Primary School have enjoyed weekly tennis sessions at the Barbados National Tennis Centre. The approximately 25 students in the programme, aged 7-11, enjoy tennis coaching from highly qualified, certified coaches Julian Baird, Kandia Shorey and Christian Maxwell.

The BTA hosts an annual, friendly, inter-school competition, where the students are able to meet and show off their skills. This year, local tennis superstar Darian King, and other members of the Barbados Davis Cup team, including Seanon Williams, along with Darian’s coach and brother, Christopher King, surprised the students, and even assisted with some of the coaching. Kudos to these young men for their involvement, and of course, much thanks to the Sol Barbados team for their continued support of the local tennis programme.
